Are you a youth? Then this is the post for you!

I had the privilege of attending the media conference held by the National Youth Council last week.

MEDIA LEH! Don't play play~

Little voice inside voice inside of me says:

"What are these doing on the chairs.....?"

":O! It's a goodie bag from Kit Kat leh! Woah, I like!
Let's see what's inside.... #kpo #typicalSingaporean"

"Wah, there's my favourite Kit Kat chocolates & notepad! *.*"

"Got free shirt some more! YAY! A girl can never have enough stuff in her wardrobe!"

"Conference start liao! Go back to topic!"

For the whole month of July, expect many exciting events lined up for you. You sure wouldn't want to miss them!

What is Shine Youth Festival?
Initiated in 2005, SHINE Youth Festival is a platform for youths between the age of 15 and 35 to indulge in their passion. The initiative celebrates youths’ creativity and dynamism and encourages them to use SHINE Youth Festival as the stage to demonstrate their energy and grow their skills and talents.

Organised by the National Youth Council, steered by a committee made up of representatives from youth organisations and executed by a Youth Organising Committee consisting of volunteers, the vibrant and colourful SHINE Youth Festival is held in the designated Youth Month in July. SHINE Youth Festival features an exciting line up of events and activities is presented by its 4 key marquee partners: Mascot Parade, O School, Singapore Street Festival and the Singapore Management University.
The conference started off with an interview. I like the host; she's nice & always laughing :)
